ACACIA CAMP SWARA PLAINS IN NAIROBI
For your outskirt trip to Nairobi, Acacia Camp on Swara Plains offers a budget-friendly and rudimentary lodging that is located 25 miles from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Set in the Kapiti grasslands - Machakos area close to Athi River, the camp is set within a 20,000-acre private wildlife sanctuary that is home to hundreds of fauna, such as zebra, eland, oryx, giraffe and many others. The savannah landscape is a wonderful setting to relax after your stressful international travel or to have one final opportunity to see the natural splendor of East Africa before you return home. The 13 traditional thatched-roof bandas provide you with the basic necessities and ambience that you may find in an uncomplicated safari bush lodge in Kenya. The self-serving interior features a canopied bed, small writing desk and full private bathroom, and the small verandah is furnished with chairs for your comfort. Some guests may find the bandas not spaced out and the indoor lighting inadequate, especially for reading and writing, and the immaculateness may not be optimum. What sets Acacia Camp Swara Plains apart from other lodgings, though, is the exclusive access you have to the wildlife sanctuary for bird watching, nature walks, cycling, fishing, game drives, to name a few of the most popular activities, and the children’s safari can be a memorable part of your family vacation in Kenya with AfricanMecca Safaris. The camp also features meeting rooms for business travelers that are looking for a unique location for small seminars and other professional gatherings in a wilderness setting, but close to Nairobi.
Simple home-cooked meals are served with garden views in the dining room, and the camp’s bar has a selection of alcoholic drinks and other beverages to refresh your thirst. Staying at Swara Plains Acacia Camp is all about relaxation and escape from the hectic pace of Nairobi but sacrificing easy access to the local attractions that complement your more extensive day tour excursions in Nairobi. Should you prefer to venture outside the Swara Plains Sanctuary, your AfricanMecca Safaris representative can arrange guided walking tours of the city that may include Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi Gallery, Bomas of Kenya, Railway Museum, African Heritage House, Karen Blixen Museum, as well as street markets, shops, restaurants and much more. During your adventurous holiday in East Africa, you may also visit Kenya’s first national park and the only preserve in the world that is situated within a capital city -- Nairobi National Park. The ecosystems within the park include open grass plains with acacia, highland dry forest, riverine forest and a migration corridor in the south (read more on when is the best time to travel to Nairobi for a Kenya safari). Primary mammal species in the Nairobi Park are endangered black rhino, cheetah, lion, hyena, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands and more than 500 species of avifauna and activities include game drives, nature walks, picnicking and visits to the Ivory Burning Site Monument that commemorates the destruction of 60 tons of confiscated ivory in 1989.
